  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Posts two tackles for loss Thursday

    Payne registered three tackles (all solo), including two for loss, and also deflected a pass in Thursday's Week 12 loss to the Cowboys.

    Payne twice stopped Tony Pollard behind the line of scrimmage, though those plays were only small nuisances to the Cowboys in their eventual blowout win. Payne has just 2.0 sacks this season after recording 11.5 last year, but nine of his 38 tackles have gone for a loss.

  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Ready to go vs. Buffalo

    Payne (ankle) was a full participant at practice Friday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game versus the Bills.

    Payne progressed from not practicing Wednesday to logging a limited practice Thursday, then took the next step Friday to be able to play in Week 3. He'll resume a starting role on the interior of the defensive line next to Jonathan Allen.

  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Back practicing in limited capacity

    Payne (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

    It's a step in the right direction towards being available to play in Week 3 after Payne sustained a minor ankle injury during Sunday's 35-33 win at Denver. He'll still probably need to log a full practice Friday in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Nursing ankle injury

    Payne missed practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

    In Washington's first injury report of the week, the lower leg injury Payne sustained during Sunday's 35-33 win at Denver was specified as an ankle issue. He'll get two more chances to practice before the Commanders' final injury report of the week is released Friday.

  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Absent Wednesday

    Payne (lower leg) is not practicing Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Payne briefly left Sunday's win over the Broncos due to an apparent lower leg injury, but he was able to retake the field in that contest. That could bode well for Payne's chances of suiting up Week 3 versus the Bills, but his participation in practice Thursday and Friday will need to be monitored.

  • Commanders' Daron Payne: Helps defense in win

    Payne played 50 snaps and finished with two tackles in Washington's 20-16 win over Arizona on Sunday.

    The defensive tackle who signed a four-year, $90-million contract in the offseason started alongside Jonathan Allen and helped anchor a defense that allowed only 210 total yards. In Week 2, Payne and the Commanders get a Broncos team that only finished with 260 total yards against the Raiders on Sunday.
